1.5 Million People/222 Companies EXEMPT From Obama Care So They Don't Lose Their Health Coverage


According to the Department of Health and Human Services as of December of 2010, 222 Organizations have received a year long waver exempting them from Obama Care. Out of the 222, 49 are Union Related organizations. The Total Number of People that make up these 222 organizations is a whopping 1,507,418.

An Article in the New York Times explains that the reason for these exemptions was so these people didn't lose their Health Care Coverage BEFORE the law Goes into Effect:

"Nancy-Ann DeParle, the director of the Office of Health Reform at the White House, acknowledged that the concessions given to companies and insurers reflected attempts to avoid having people lose their current coverage before the full law goes into effect while meeting the aim of improving that coverage.

“It is a balancing act,” Ms. DeParle said. “The president wants to have a smooth glide path to 2014.”

WAIT a Minute.. a Representative of the Government Admitting that people WILL Lose their Coverage because of Obama Care? They Just don't want it to Happen BEFORE the Law takes Full Effect in 2014?

What Happened to this Promise from President Obama?:




I Guess it seems that once the Law Goes into Full effect, NONE of us will be able to keep our Doctor or Health Coverage because Companies will find it cheaper to pay the fine and dump their employees Health Coverage, than try to live up to the Rules in Obama Care. So if we want to keep our Coverage now, we better hope the Company we Work for gets a Waiver from our "Mighty Rulers" in Washington.

I guess because my small company doesn’t make political contributions we’re not eligible for the exemption. The solution is to repeal this obomination of a bill. Thanks for doing the research.
